Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In a guideline (OECD 306) and GLP biodegradability study in seawater, a substance that meets the description "Poly(oxy-1,2-ethanediyl), α-butyl-ω-hydroxy" gave a positive result (>60% degradation relative to the COD value) with a maximum of 70% recorded on day 28. Testing in sediment not required as the substance is readily biodegradable.
